'The World Health Organization’s (WHO) draft drinking water guidelines for “forever chemicals” disregard best available science and require extensive revisions, two former federal officials argued in a new position paper.'
...raising a public alarm over what they label “weak” PFAS drinking water limits proposed by the World Health Organization, which they charge used shoddy science and “arbitrarily” dismissed hundreds of studies linking the “forever chemicals” to serious health problems.
Some further alleged the process of developing the guidelines was corrupted by industry-aligned consultants aiming to undercut strict new PFAS limits proposed in the US, and weaken standards in the developing world. The chemicals have been called “forever chemicals” due to their longevity in the environment.
If only our Australia Government & agencies shows some morals and ethics!!!

New report reveals pesticide industry’s disinformation and science denial playbook. Merchants of Poison: How Monsanto Sold the World on a Toxic Pesticide, illuminates the disinformation, science denial, and manufactured doubt at the core of the pesticide industry’s public relations playbook. It is shear hard work coming at great expense to some researchers - physically, mentally and financially but there are companies recklessly using toxic and unsafe chemicals for short term gain. The report has the following disclaimer which is similar to how I operate. Massive research, then connect the dots for what is in the public domain and what we know anecdotally. Just trying to fight the system when the immoral operators use their degrees and positions to spread disinformation and manufacture doubt. Let this all be a lesson - do not let disinformation rule your life because it might just be what destroys it.
